I did my research about vertical sleeve surgery before I saw Dr K. In fact I went to another surgery center to see their program. I felt they were too big to give me the time & attention I required. I dislike doctors , medicine & was terrified to even consider surgery. Dr K and his staff are so kind and knowledgeable that I was able to qwell my fears and had surgery. The staff at the surgery center were fabulous. I am know recovering at home, pretty sore but not terrribly so.

I have been a patient of Dr Krishnaraj for 10 years. He performed Lapband surgery on me, when I was 420 pounds. Dr Krish is quiet and easy to work with and the visit to him is all about you. The staff in the office is friendly and efficient, be it calling you to remind you of an appointment, or scheduling a visit. For 10 years I have felt comfortable during a visit and relied upon Dr Krish to remove my gall bladder and perform hernia surgery last year. Do not hesitate seeking his expertise.

I would definately refer friends, family or anyone that is considering any type of bariatric surgery here. The staff are great. Always friendly and try to help in any way they can. My wait time is usually less 2 minutes. Normally I don't even sit down. The office is very clean. And the Doctor and staff answer any and all questions you have. I have never felt rushed. Over all... the BEST!!

In my opinion this office, the staff and Dr. Krishnaraj are without any doubt the best in Tampa Bay! It surpasses all other doctors that I have researched and gone to. I was very particular in my search for a surgeon who would have his credentials and listens to any concerns that I may have. He is always there and available when I need him; my husband now goes to his office as well. He will having surgery early 2018. Look no further, you will be very pleased with this Doctor and his staff!

Never!!! He is a liar. I have caught his office in multiple lies!!! When I confront them they raise their voice at me and will not admit their lies unless I tell them I'm going to report them. Run away from this doctor.

I was previously going to a different surgeon that performed lap band surgery. My sewing teacher told me so many good things about Dr Krish. I learned so much more from her and the doctor I had to ask if he could take my case since my former dr retired. He is very clear about my case, the pitfalls, portion control, and was willing to take me on for little return for his time. In a few visits I have learned more than I ever did in 8 to 9 months.

Dr. Krishnaraj was very knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. He did not make me feel rushed through the office visit and really listened carefully my concerns. Not only that, but he was extremely proficient with his skills. I was very impressed and will definitely be returning this office for many more visits.
